We're Planning for Fall 2021

Descanso Creatives Writers' Retreat 2021 Bordeaux, France

The Art of the Finish: get it done, get it edited, get it out

September 12th - September 19th, 2021

Descanso--an intentional rest or pause to catch one's breath before continuing the journey.

Dreaming of the French Wine Country.....

Enjoy these beautiful views of Southern France

Dear Friends,

 As artists, we dream about creating our best work. We thrive in beautiful settings with small groups of like-minded community. We are currently designing a rare opportunity to learn the specifics of how to bring your writing to completion. In September 2021, Descanso Creatives hopes to be gathering in the South of France near the legendary vineyards of Bordeaux. Come spend an unforgettable week unpacking the details of finessing your work for publication: how to finish, review, edit and produce it.


Full information on the flow of the week, which will include excursions to vineyards and historic sites, along with our traditional times of Cellosong and opportunities for deep writing, one-on-one consults and creativity, will be available to you as soon as plans more firm.


However, we have already received some “Save Me A Place!” emails from writers and artists from previous Descanso Retreats! If you are interested in further details or want to be placed on our “Save Me A Place!” list, please contact me by clicking on the email link below.

We are eagerly anticipating another transformational Descanso Writers’ Retreat experience and hope you will join us in the South of France September 2021!

Looking forward to being in touch,

Chick Morgan, Ph.D.

If you are unfamiliar with the Bordeaux area, here s a delicious look at what the city of Bordeaux has to offer. Though our adventure is not a tourist excursion, the city's ambiance will certainly inform our own work.
